Genome Announc. 2017 Jan 12;5(2). pii: e01451-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01451-16.


Obesity influences and is influenced by the human gut microbiome. Here, we present the genome of Christensenella minuta, a highly heritable bacterial species which has been found to be strongly associated with obesity through an unknown biological mechanism. This novel genome provides a valuable resource for future obesity therapeutic studies.
